Petition A Pie must be totally enclosed in pastry, with a lid - without a lid it is a flan or a tart
The term Pie is used loosely, 'Custard Pie' is custard with a pastry base, sides and no lid.
Some eateries advertise pie, but it is a bowl of filling with just a lid.
A Pie has pastry base, sides and most importantly - a lid.
Without a lid it is a 'Flan' or a 'Tart' depending on the content being savoury or sweet.
